Ratings for Dr. Mark L. Prasarn
Excellent physician!! Dr. Prasarn performed a fusion on my neck about a year ago. I was very pleased with the outcome. He is very thorough and nice person above all. I would recommend him and his team to anyone that is suffering from neck or back pain.
As a Trauma ICU nursing having worked alongside Dr. Prasarn for over 5 years I always told people that if I ever needed my spine operated on, he would be the only person I would want to do it. That was a statement that I hoped I would never have to cash in on but over the past summer I herniated a disc at C6-C7 in a car accident. I experienced a good bit of pain and arm weakness as a result. After seeing Dr. Prasarn and having an MRI, I found myself in the OR having an Anterior Cervical Discectomy and Fusion. I am now about 5 months post op, pain free, weakness gone, and back to working out and running regularly. I simply can not recommend Dr. Prasarn enough. He is the best there is and extremely thorough and caring. Between Dr. Prasarn and his amazing PA Kim, I was always well informed, taken care of, and followed up with. Again, aside from being a patient myself, after working as a Trauma ICU nurse and taking care of countless numbers of his patients, I would absolutely recommend him to anyone. I now live over 1500 miles from Houston but would come back to him in a second if I (hopefully never!) ever needed spine surgery again!
Everything about this experience - diagnosis, treatment/surgery, follow up was exceptional. Friendly staff, efficient clinic operation and knowledgeable and caring physician. He listened to my concerns and addressed them every time. I would recommend Dr. Prasarn and his team to anyone and everyone. I can't say enough good things about it all. Best physician I've had.
Dr. Prasarn did not seem to care about my medical condition from the first doctors visit , also I called many times to get my MRI review and never received a call back. When I finally did receive a call from having to all numerous times, he had his physicians assistant call me and pretty much said my condition wasn't severe. Along with no recommendations, I have been living in pain for 4 years from three herniated disks , gone through physical therapy and injections ; nothing helped. The fact that they said pretty much they could do nothing for me enraged me . I went to Dr. Prasarn for help, a second option and relief but he did not help what's so ever. Normally I do not give reviews if i had a bad experience but this one was horrible and set me back almost $600 for nothing. I am furious.
Do not waste your time with this doctor. My pain management doctor told me it was time to find a surgeon. After waiting 3 weeks to get in I drove 4 hours to see Dr Prasarn because he was Recommended by a friend. He reviewed my MRI for only a moment and spent maybe 5 minutes in the room before telling me he couldn't help me. Next time I WILL find a doctor to review the MRI ahead of time. Very disappointed.
Dr. Prasarn saved me from having an unnecessary surgery being pushed on me by a neurosurgeon. His advice to exercise and simple time and patience were all I needed to get onto the road to recovery. I feel can not believe I almost had surgery unnecessarily. Dr. Prasarn is an outstanding physician I would recommend him to any friend or family member.
Dr. Prasarn is an excellent doctor. Im 17 years old, He saved my life, fixed my whole spine, and motivated me to continue my normal life.
